For trans people

Though many trans or gender-diverse people enjoy healthy and happy sexual experiences/relationships, others may experience difficulties due to many factors including shame around genitalia or appearance, fear of rejection and fear of having sex with partners who may not understand the complexity of the trans experience.


Healthy self-esteem and enjoying your own body during sex can sometimes be a challenge, and some people find that drugs or alcohol can assist in overcoming these issues. However, it’s important to be aware that drugs and alcohol can interfere with hormone levels, impair our judgment, decrease sensitivity, and sometimes lead us to make poor choices around safer sex. Our ability to provide consent can even be impaired.


cliniQ is a sexual health and well-being service for trans people, their partners and friends, offering full sexual health screening and referrals for counselling, drug and alcohol advice, and other trans support. Why not drop in?


When & where: Wednesday evenings from 5.30pm to 7.30pm at 56 Dean Street, London W1D 6AQ.
